As soon as the shuttle turned onto the main road leaving the airport I realized that I would be seeing much more than palm trees on the island of Lana’i.  Pine trees lined the road leading into Lana’i City and I new I was in for a topiary treat over the next 10 days!  Granted I’m no tree expert – I don’t know the names or varieties – I just simply love to photograph them.  In fact – I have a fun Pinterest Board solely dedicated to tree photography!

Lana’i has a tree focused history – and thanks to the Norfolk Pine tree – the dry island found a way to trap moisture.

Needless to say – I took a lot of photos of trees while on Lana’i – here are some of my favorites.
